    Is there a way to identify if a site is joomla or drupal?

    For example, I've been using wordpress for a while and i can tell by looking at it or by looking at the page source if its wordpress. How can i do that with joolma and drupal sites?

    You can. When you use them its easy to tell viewing the source. For Drupal it usually has module or node. I cant remember what it is for joomla. I use Drupal more.

    That is actually a lot easier than checking the source and has some cool info.

    Thanks for the replies

    btw i heard that using drupal or joomla is better if you want to make a user generated site. like a site where users can register and submit content: images, articles, etc. You guys know anything about that?

    I checked this website and looked up a joomla website but it didnt give any details for the cms. I checked a wp blog and it showed Content Management System: wordpress

    Most of the times, you can see a joomla website by:
    -The sef urls might not be enabled so you will see something like com_content when you click to read a post (a decent portion of userrs do not enable sef urls!!)
    -In the page source, you will definitely see either /component or for sure /module which is the same as plugin for wordpress (pretty much). This is something that you would definitely see if you browse a couple of pages
    -If they have eshop, 90% that they will use virtuemart so site:xx.xxxx virtuemart should give you results
    -Finally if they use commercial templates and you know some well known (ja,jv etc etc) you will see it in the page source. (/templates/ja_xxx ) etc

    Joomla is flexible but its not as friendly as wordpress imo.
    For content construction, if you know programming you can have a look here:
    Code:

    Its free and it has some additional extensions:

    I've been using Joomla for 2 years and I can say that it is a good CMS for any type of website. 2 years ago there are only around 3000 extensions and now it already 8000 extensions..so the possibilities is many.
